What to do when you are bored
Tuesday, December 01, 2009      3 comments

I have a theory as to why my weight loss has slowed to a crawl and I think the culprit is how much I am walking in a day. So now that I have the time to map out where I walk and how long it takes me, I have found a disturbing trend in that I'm ... Read more
The end of another month
Monday, November 30, 2009      2 comments

Wow we are into the home stretch of 2009. Where on earth did all the time go? I guess that between work, kids and family the year just kind of slipped away. I didn't do as well as I had hoped on the weight loss this month but at least I l... Read more

Tuesday, November 24, 2009      9 comments

I was digging through my dresser trying to find some jeans that fit properly (I have 3 pairs that I love but all are a bit big around the waist now and I couldn't find my belt). So I dug down to the bottom of my jeans drawer and found a pair I ... Read more

Well I had an ok last shift. Had one difficult customer but that was nothing to with mine or my co-workers service it's just that the vehicle was not what she had anticipated so she wasn't too happy. I also had a regular customer of ours a... Read more

The future looks bleak

I just need to post this to sort through my emotions. I thank anyone that actually reads this mess but don't know what I expect to gain from this other than getting it off my chest. I am still without a voice and trying to figure out my me... Read more
First snow of the season fell last night

This is what my backyard looked like at about 9:30AM today (please ignore the mess in the yard LOL): The snow is still here and it's almost 11AM now makes me wonder i... Read more

Still waiting to hear about leave of absence
Friday, November 13, 2009      2 comments

Man who knew that trying to get time off with a doctor's note could be so difficult. Our HR director hasn't been in the office in almost a week (when I sent my first email to her and faxed my doctor's note in). All I need to know is if there i... Read more
A day spent remembering
Wednesday, November 11, 2009      2 comments

I attended our Rememberance Day ceremonies in town and listened to my daughter (along with 5 other girls from her school) sing "In Flander's Fields". I spent the time at the ceremonies thinking about what our military personnel do to keep us fr... Read more

Another weekend down
Sunday, November 08, 2009      2 comments

Yesterday we went grocery shopping and we also stopped at Future Shop and I found an intersting puzzle game in the clearance rack. I can't pass up a game that has puzzles and cost me less than $5 for my NDS. We also rented Lego Rock Band for t... Read more
Grocery shopping fun
Saturday, November 07, 2009      2 comments

I am often struck by why they tell you to go shopping alone for groceries. Now I know. It's not the random crap or the begging that gets me it's the constant bickering my girls do, they are 14 and 11 and are constantly at one another and it se... Read more
Re-evaluating my goals
Friday, November 06, 2009      3 comments

I decided that perhaps I should take inventory of what I'm doing and where I want to be by December 15. Originally I had thought that 20 lbs. would be a good goal. Well after almost reaching that mark I decided that perhaps I should go a littl... Read more
Let the cards fall where they may
Tuesday, November 03, 2009      2 comments

After almost 2 months without a voice I got my doctor to write a very short note to my employer suggesting that perhaps 2-4 weeks of voice rest (ie. don't go to work for up to a month) is in order. The specialist I saw recommended a voice t... Read more
